Well,I rarely listen to anything past 78' so I certainly don't have any interest in releases after that,but I understand they have to be open to the entire span of the bands career.What really confuses me is when they put out a weak show from the bands strong years like the first 4 Dave's Picks,I can't see what made any one of them release worthy.
-DP 1-
Promised Land was the only exceptional performance from the entire show.
-DP 2-
To Lay Me Down was the lone highlight.
-DP 3
There wasn't a single special performance from the 10/22 show,the Dark Star from the bonus disc was the only reason to listen to this release.
-DP 4-
The newest has nothing exceptional on it at all.

So I would be thrilled with a Dec. 72' box which was overflowing with brilliant versions of their more challenging material.
